Tasting Notes
The bright, pure flavors of our Sauvignon Blanc echo the spectacular beauty of New Zealand’s South Island. A beautiful light straw color with a tint of green. Zesty citrus and floral aromas lead to balanced flavors of passion fruit, melon, fig and gooseberry, followed by a clean, refreshing finish. It’s exquisite on its own or paired with lighter fair.
Ratings
93 Points - The Tasting Panel Magazine, “Kiwi Winemaker – and longtime hero – Nick Goldschmidt creates this charmer in a maritime-influenced cool climate with a long, cool growing season. We’ve tasted his Sauv Blancs now from around the world and he has a way with pulling out the most aromatic tropical notes. This wine opens with lime and white grapefruit aromas, but leads to a palate where pineapple finds a home with sweet fig and a hint of grassiness. Sharp acidity has us reaching for more, and pairing with summer dishes.” – Meridith May
Vineyard Notes
Our Sauvignon Blanc is grown in the pristine vineyards of Marlborough, surrounded by jagged mountain peaks, brilliant blue skies, and a maze of crystal clear inlets. With its bright, exuberant flavors and crisp acidity, every sip of Echo Bay Sauvignon Blanc is pure New Zealand.
Winemaker Notes
Our grapes were hand-selected from Marlborough’s premier vineyards, where sea breezes and a long, cool growing season allow the fruit to develop complexity and exceptional acidity. Winemakers gently cold-ferment the grapes in stainless steel, then secure each bottle with a convenient screwcap, ensuring each glass is as pure and fresh as the first. None of the wine undergoes malolactic fermentation in order to maintain crisp varietal acidity.
Other Notes
Nick Goldschmidt is a renowned viticulture veteran with an unparalleled level of esteem and winemaking experience. He has spent his career working with global fruit from vineyards in Argentina, New Zealand, Spain, as well as the United States and has been touted for his consistent endorsement of quality in winemaking. Nick has held proud titles including Vice President and Chief Winemaker at prestigious properties such as Simi Winery, Allied Domecq Wines USA, and Beam Estates wine portfolio.
